Save The Date

This one day course is designed for GPS/ESS Surgeons in conjunction with Emergency Medicine for Rural Hospitals course and the Endoscopy Skills Day for Practicing Endoscopists course. The program will update rural ESS surgeons with current methods, facilitate informal communication and encourage FP-Specialist networks within ESS services.

Bring Your OR Nurses

Rural OR nurses are invited to fully participate in this program. In addition to attending the Wednesday and Thursday dinner programs and Thursday am sessions, there will be a Thursday lunch/networking meeting followed by dedicated program stream for rural OR Nursing. With the support of our sponsors RPAP, RCCbc and the SRPC we are able to reduce registration to $50 for all OR nurses and to offer a $500 bursary to the first 20 OR Nurses who register. || Info and Registration Coming Soon ||
